16 oz can served in a nonic glass. Revisited with a 12 oz can in November 2016.

Pours light amber in color with a good head that has decent retention and some lacing. Little in the way of rising carbonation bubbles for style. Poor clarity.

Aroma: mixed grains, soft fruits and herbal hops.

Flavor: Fruity for style.

Feel: light body and medium-low, too low, carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: a decent pilsner, but compares poorly to the SN/Firestone Walker Beer Camp Torpedo Pilsner that preceded it.

Pours a pale amber colour, with slight bubbling. Head is white, a bit thin but decent. Lace is OK. Nice enough.

Smells weird. Honey and boot polish. Sweet, oaty bread. Bit funky. Odd.

Taste is quite bready, yeasty. Dry, with some rubber notes and more honey, and a touch of oat. Some crisp apple, but not much else crisp or really fresh. OK though.

A bit of texture. Bit of body. Still a bit stodgy for a lager.

Nice enough, but could be crisper for something called 'the crisp'.
